JoeMcPhee (9408) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2012
Pale amber pour with a thick white head. The aroma is quite malty and sweet. A touch of soft caramel along with a little bit of toasted grain. Some moderately spicy hop aroma is apparent as well, but theyre quite muted. Medium-bodied with a bit of sweetness but its pretty well-balanced. I wouldnt call it my favourite beer but its a pretty decent lawnmower brew.

blankboy (7461) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2012
Can [500ml]. Pours a clear, deep orange-amber with an average size semi-lasting fizzy off-white head. Aroma of sweet bready malt, caramel, some light toastiness and nuts. After a minutes some light hops appear in the aroma and its more pleasant, bumping up the score a bit. Mild flavours also bready malt first, lightly sweet, followed by caramel, some nuts and just a hint of hops in the finish. Average to medium bodied. Nothing special and nothing bad, just a decent Amber Ale.

Radek Kliber (7247) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 6, 2013
Can 473 ml
Aroma: woody , nutty as well musky. Slight spicy mushroom like backing.
Look: poured as clear amber with medium top. Short lived. 2+
Taste etc: medium body, slightly oily. Nutty tad astringent yet with decent British twist. Good to see solid malt base. Skipping aroma , quiet refreshing.

HogTownHarry (6381) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2012
473ml can from the LCBO. Clear copper with an average diminishing tan fizzy head. Pretty solid aroma - cereal grain and a fair bit of floral bitterness - not all that sweet either (7-). Taste follows, but less fresh grain, a little papery, and the sweetness creeps in ... light, chewy mouthfeel, sharply carbonated, finishes quick and slightly earthy - not bad!
